Chapter Summary

This section of the book West over Sea: Studies in Scandinavian Sea-Borne Expansion and Settlement Before 1300 presents illustrations such as those depicting (1) Auzon casket, (2) Halliara Kirk, Fetlar and plantiecrub from the south-west, and (3) Grimister Chapel site, Yell. The book is divided into four main sections, History and Cultural Contacts; The Church and the Cult of Saints; Archaeology, Material Culture and Settlement; and Place Names and Language, each of which reflects one of Barbara’s areas of interest, within the general theme of cultural links between Scandinavia and western Europe (and particularly Scotland) in the Middle Ages.

Keywords: cult of saints; Scandinavian sea-borne expansion
